GHANA TOURISM AUTHORITY TO ORGANIZE A SECOND PARAGLIDING FESTIVAL!

April 22, 2014

0

That was quick! All without an evaluation and assessment of the event just finished. Did it make a profit? After all tourism is an industry, a business, and I’m sure our tax payer cedis-the 1% tourism levy-went to pay the fifteen foreign paragliders expenses and salaries. It kinda smells of personal agendas superseding the public […]

After almost a year campaigning, sometimes I think there is no way the scrap short term tourist visas to Ghana campaign can succeed!
